    He must have been watching porn or something the night before and forgot to confess his sins the next day, hence God didn't save him.

    That's my scientific opinion.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea to actually READ the bible they preach about.

    Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

    “‘He will command his angels concerning you,
    and they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

    Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.

    You would have thought that his father's death from the same thing might have been a clue.

    Hush.
    Course he does exist. Just not the one THIS pastor was worshipping. The real god that does exist clearly was annoyed at this pastor for worshipping the wrong god.

    The "thought" process seems to have been:-

    Father dies from snake bite - treat as test from God (failed)
    Self repeatedly bitten - leave untreated as an act of fail (won)
    Bitten again - leave untreated as an act of faith (lost/dead)

    So we are probably talking of a 2/3 win ratio which isn't that bad. Except they are both dead of course. Although that might be win win for the rest of us, especially if stupidity is catching.

    You could forgive the messing with snakes, we all do silly dangerous things from time to time.

    They're not called the Darwin awards for nothing.

    There's a delicious irony in a man of faith doing his bit for natural selection*.



    *before any pedant pipes up, yeah I know, you can't really call it evolution in action if the individual concerned was old enough to breed when he popped his clogs

    Men can still breed at the age he died.

    It is only irrelevant in an evolutionary sense if you die once your are unable to breed.

    I'd just like to point out that asterisked footer was there before Wibble posted and not added as a retrospective edit.
